I was on my way to Kampala from Fort Portal when hell broke loose.
I had gotten a seat in the Kampala bound mini-bus at the Fort-Portal taxi park when the driver tuned our station for the 10am news bulletin and there was a breaking news story. “….Dozens of people have been killed by suspected ADF rebels in Kijura…” came the voice of the news anchor.
I knew this was serious and decided not to continue with the journey. I disembarked and headed straight to the station. I asked the Acting News Editor, Frank Bagonza, to give me all the information he had so far collected. He did and I immediately noticed that things were not adding up.
